Hand-made Pasta Recipe for an Italian Themed Dinner Party
To serve 8 guests, here's what you'll need:
- 7/8 lb. of Flour
- 4 Eggs
- Good dash of salt
- Hand cranked Pasta Roller (available at any supercenter such as Target)
- Food Processor (optional)
- Pasta sauce; preferable one red and one white
I like to wait to make the dough until all the guests are present so that everyone
can see the entire process. Place 7/8 lb. of flour and 4 eggs into the food
processor and pulse until dough appears like peas. Remove from food processor
and knead slightly.
Fold dough into a square shape and run through pasta maker on the largest
setting. Then continue to run the dough though pasta machine, increasing the
setting with each run.
After dough is at the desired thinness, change the pasta attachment to the
spaghetti cutter and pass the dough through one last time. Put freshly made
pasta directly into boiling salted water, and it's ready in about 3 minutes.
Guests are usually shocked at how easy this process is! Everyone loves standing
around in the kitchen with a glass of wine while we make the pasta. Be sure to
serve a gourmet sauce worthy of this special spaghetti!
